The LA Chargers are one of the most exciting teams in the entire NFL and we are finally going to see the team get the love in primetime that is deserves. The AFC West is loaded with talent and with the Bolts playing in the second biggest market in the country with one of the best young quarterbacks, they are going to be playing in the bright lights quite a bit.

The Bolts have come a far way in such a short amount of time from when they were playing in a soccer arena that was occupied by mostly visiting fans. Ticket sales are now thriving and the Chargers fanbase is one of the fastest growing in the sport.

Last season the Chargers had four primetime games, three of which were scheduled before the season. The NFL flexed the Chargers-Raiders Week 18 game into Sunday Night Football as it had the most playoff implications of any game in Week 18 last season.

The Chargers already have one primetime game announced as the NFL announced during the draft that the Chargers will take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football in Week 2.

We predict that will be the first of five primetime games for the LA Chargers in 2022.

When it is all said and done, we are predicting that the LA Chargers are going to be playing in four additional primetime games on top on the Thursday Night Football showcase against the Kansas City Chiefs.

We don't know the Chargers' exact schedule yet but we do know who the team is playing and where. Let's dive into our four primetime-game predictions for the Bolts and the day we think they will be played, in no particular order.
